Study in United States of America
- The US is the most popular destination for international students while American universities often dominate the global rankings.
- As can be expected of a country with a population of 325 million, the US has a diverse range of cities and universities to choose from.
- The United States is the world’s greatest economic power in terms of gross domestic product and has been among the world’s highest-ranking countries in terms of GDP per capita. The US economy is marked by resilience, flexibility, and innovation.
The purpose of the USC Marshall School of Business Master of Business Administration is to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become effective leaders. First year students start with the Core – foundational business learning compressed into five terms over the course of the first year – that cover the all-important basics: accounting concepts, data analysis and modeling, operations management, strategy, marketing, communications, and finance. In Term 4 students undertake a seven-week consulting assignment with a Los Angeles-based client, who expects real results. MBA students may select as many as four elective classes during spring semester of their first year. This provides students the opportunity to take classes that they feel will prepare them to be successful in their summer internship.
